Application Instructions

Crete Lease 880 works best when applied thin and evenly. The less you use the better the finish. We recommend using a fan tip with a low flow, such as 800015, 800067 tip. It can be applied using a manual sprayer like a Chapin 1949 or a compressed tank sprayer like the ACTECH Fatboy range. It is recommended that a filter be used in the line.  

Because Crete Lease 880 is a reactive release agent, any excess in the edges or vertices should be mopped up - wait 30 minutes after initial spraying to check for this excess.

Works in either 5 minutes or up to 3 weeks after being put onto the mould. Please note that after heavy rain re-application is required.
